I saw several casting calls looking to cast the youngest boy in the Fun Home tour. I mentioned it to Brendan but with Show Boat and Into the Woods going on there didn’t seem a good time to work on a submission (they were taking videos). But after the third post and an addendum that the original submission could be any song, I sent in Bren’s materials. He was asked to submit a video with a specific song and sides from the show and thankful BCT helped us!
He didn’t get a call for the show but the agent who submitted the original posting asked if Bren would be interested in other auditions. Of course he said yes! He has gone twice to New York- once with me and once with Chris- just for the day, taking the bus.
To say he loved it would be an understatement. He had to find all the theaters and shows he listens to. He had to see Times Square. He had to keep his eyes peeled for actors he might know. And funny enough he saw two Show Boat cast members!
He didn’t get call backs for either show but he had a great experience. And if anything else comes up he is starting to understand what to expect.
